On  preparing  for a big event …

Always make sure you don’t force fashion, be honest with yourself, make sure you are comfortable, and make sure it looks good on you. She suggests “whatever happens, the show must go on.”

Her advice to contestants …

“Put your best foot forward … do you. Do what’s best that can represent yourself and your country, and hopefully it will take you to the finals and to the crown. Don’t beat yourself up, none of us are perfect.”

What Fox is looking forward to most …

Fox can’t wait to see the pageant gowns most of all. “The fashions that are going to be coming from everywhere around the world will be wonderful to look at,” said Fox.

The qualities she will be looking for …

“A sense of humor … if she can make me smile.” You can only be beautiful on the outside and “she’s representing the universe so she has to have the qualities everyone can relate to all around the world.”

Fox warns not to put so much pressure on yourself that you freeze up … be yourself, be likeable and down to earth to match your outer beauty. “I don’t like to see a stiff Barbie doll, I like to see a beautiful woman,” said Fox.

On wedding news …

Fox didn’t reveal much, but she hinted at it being around the holidays and that it will definitely be special. She said she is trying to keep it as secret as possible, but it will be very romantic and intimate.
